Miami, Florida - United States
At Club Space 2AM on a Saturday and 11AM on a Wednesday can look very similar. Why? Because Club Space has a 24 hour operating licence. I know licensing isn’t generally the most exciting part of a rave, but in this case it means “non-stop party allowed.” So, it’s cool with us.
Club Space is bringing in topline DJs including Danny Tenaglia, Erick Morillo, Steve Lawler, Deep Dish, Paul Van Dyk, and John Digweed for 10-hour sets that continue into the afternoon. Oh, and have I even mentioned full alcohol service? Take a peek inside.

Meet every urge in one place- it’s almost too good to be true, but Zouk is making it happen.
